Wrapped Around Him (Moroad MC #1) by Debra Kayn Review
WRAPPED AROUND HIM is a difficult book for me to review. The writing is fluid and the story is well told but I felt that the relationship between Cam and Christina lacked something. Cam has been biding his time for the day that he can bring Christina to him. When she all but falls in his lap he gets her in a way that doesn't show any regard for her at all. Christina finds herself facing the consequences of trying to work out her personal issues through communications with a violent prisoner. When things finally come to a head they don't feel well placed together. I didn't get a sense of passion or any strong emotions from Christina or Cam. I expected for everything to be more pronounced between them. I expected more impactful emotional elements to the story that I just didn't feel. All in all, this felt like a romance without the engrossing passion, drama, and action that I wanted. There are no real moments of even fleeting joy or happiness between Cam and Christina, even when they come together physically. It was more like a feeling of this is what Cam decided he wanted, Christina gave in, and that is that. I wanted to be swept away into the drama of this story but I just didn't quite get there this time.
**I recieved an ARC in exchange for an honest review.**
Empathy is an emotion that has always evaded Cam Farrell, president of the Moroad Motorcycle Club and prisoner #18794. He's gambled with his life to finish the gun chain running across the states, get the majority of his MC brothers working inside the prison system, and place the smoke screen in Federal, Idaho. He only needs one more thing—Christina. What he wants, he takes, and freedom doesn't mean a damn thing.
Christina Nickelson keeps to herself and uses her part-time job for Silver Valley's Department of Children's Services to help those who are also alone and hurting. The anger and fear she thought she'd overcome after her parents were murdered resurfaces when an ex-convict and leader of a motorcycle club claims a teenage boy in her care. She can't let her worries go. Putting herself at risk, she finds herself held hostage, witnessing a murder, and questioning fate. The only person she can rely on is the biker who will kill her if she tries to leave.
